Fallbrook, California

Great spot across from the beach. Nice rooms, fun guests hanging at the jacuzzi, and considerate staff. This is a great weekend for those couples seeking a relaxing getaway. We met some very chill couples at the pool. Pretty soon we were all great friends and sharing ice chests, and amazing 300 dollar bottle tequila. I'd gladly return to this...

Though Capistrano Surfside Inn is a bit dated, the friendly, accommodating staff, the spacious unit and the great location made up for any desire for a newer resort. In fact, the unit was very quiet unlike what one often experiences in new resorts with little soundproofing between the units. The trip to California was a high school graduation present for...

Capistrano Surfside Inn is a great place to relax: besides its great location by the beach, the entire staff is a happy, helpful group to be around with. The location is convenient - close to a major freeway, several grocery stores around the area, and a major outlet store is nearby for shoppers who love the outlet malls (like me).

We have owned two weeks for several years and always visit in December/January and February. It is an older property, but immaculate and the 37 units have a "feel" like a bed and breakfast. The staff is the best, and it is right across from Doheny Beach so you can hear the surf and enjoy the ocean from your room....

We visited end of November. The weather was wonderful!! I requested a room we were familiar with, and found it had not been updated, but that was not a problem. We were shown the updated rooms and they are very nice. Next time. I chose our room as it was close to the elevator. There were a few quirks but...

Reviewed 10 November 2016

The location and the comfort of the Surfside Inn would be hard to match when visiting seaside California. Our one bedroom unit was clean and inviting. It was more than adequate for a lovely fall week at the beach. The oversize jacuzzi tub in our bathroom was a surprise, but perhaps Boomer-age surfer guests who desire a soak use theirs....
